Hundreds of new students and their family members attended Blueprints, the annual registration event, on June 24 and 25. The weekend was packed with activities to welcome students to the Trinity community.
The festivities began Friday evening with a barbeque supper in the Commons, hosted by President Steve Timmermans, Ph.D. Parents attended a session on academics and student life, while the students enjoyed an opportunity to meet classmates and be officially welcomed as the newest Trolls.
Everyone enjoyed an ice cream social and later gathered in the Commons Amphitheater for a time of praise and worship. Students stayed busy into the night with a variety of options, including sporting events and games.
The faculty-hosted breakfast kicked off day two, giving students and their families a chance to talk with faculty members from their areas of study. While parents attended a session on college finances, students met with faculty members for one-on-one advising and registration.
The Information Expo supplied students and parents with information about campus organizations, and local churches, banks, and businesses. Students were able to visit some model suites in West and South Halls before attending sessions about the First Year Experience and community life at Trinity.
